Selena Gomez E! Special June 29 10 PM

Selena Gomez E! Entertainment Special: Selena Gomez explores the life of this 19-year old beauty from her early days in Texas through her first acting auditions to the mega-success she enjoys today. Gomez opens up to E! about her life so far, including what it was like to be bullied in school,

Her relationship with BFF Demi Lovato thoughts on dating a superstar. Helping to tell Selena’s story are interviews with mother, father, step father, Taylor Swift and many others. The most intimate portrait to date of this budding A-lister, the E! Entertainment Special: Selena Gomez premieres on June 29 10 PM ET/ PT.

On her parent’s divorce: ‘I wanted a family so bad. I wanted to have my dad and my mom together. So it was really, it was really hard‘. Mommy Mandy: ‘It was very hard for her. And, she didn’t understand. You know, it was like destroying..

her family. All we could do is just say ‘I’m sorry but you will understand one day.’‘ Selena’s cousin Pricilla: ‘We had some really mean girls in our school and they would just be like ‘oh she’s on Barney, she’s a big baby’ and just tease her.’

On being a role model: ‘I never really said I want to be a role model. But then when it happened I was so down for it. Once I realized that I would have a little girl come to [me] and say she wants to be just like [me]. It [is] beautiful and I..

..accept it. I’m human, I’m not perfect. I make mistakes all the time, but I guess my job is to keep those mistakes to myself, which I’m already fine doing and just try to be the best I can be for those kids.’

Selena on fame: ‘This is a very superficial job. I sit in a chair for two hours and get hair and makeup done and talk about [myself] in interviews. That’s a very vain thing to do. And I do get caught up in it sometimes. I do.

Taylor Swift on the time she and Selena went to the University of Notre Dame to visit her brother: ‘So we fly to Notre Dame and decide we’re gonna fit in. We went and we got all this Notre..

..Dame gear so we’re like wearing the Notre Dame jacket and the Notre Dame visor and we learned that’s not how you fit in at college evidently. As we were walking around masses of people ended up following us. And yes they had to call security but it’s all we have that’s close to a normal college experience’”

    Wtf she looks like sammi ftom jersey shore

  • Ashley

    …no she does not. personally, I find Sammi much prettier. but no, Selena does not look like Sammi.

  • PermanantDecemberXO

    Might watch it. I won’t go out of my way cause she hasn’t done anything amazing or really important. She’s a okay singer but a bad performer (because she just sings and marches around the stage and has no passion n her words or even her face). Her acting is good and she so sweet. She makes it impossible to hate her and she gorgeous. I’m a fan but lets be real, she doesn’t stick out.

    Although Selena dating Justin happened at a point where things were happening for her really fast, I do think this is true. E! is capitalizing on the interest in Selena dating Justin and is going to use that as leverage for more views on their segment. But E! is probably also interested in Selena herself or they wouldn’t have enough meat, even with Justin, to go on.

    Selena had plenty of professional work and rumors going around before Justin.

    Thank you! I honestly like Selena, but where the fuck did she get that idea? I think her parents r rlly controlling and ingrained it in her, but…like, dont u wanna live ur own life ON UR OWN TERMS?! The beauty of life is finding out who u r thru ur mistakes nd finding hapiness thru rising above them. But you cant do that wen ur a robot, letting everyone control ur actions bc ur too scared to let ppl see u “mess up.” Whatever. I just noe I find Miley/Demi to be 100000000000 times a better role model than Selena

    wat is with all the bad comments below?? selena is very successful NOT b/c she is dating JB. She was famous B4 he was even discovered. If you don’t think she is successful, why do you think she is in TV shows? Movies? Concerts? Award shows? C-Ds? Clothing Line? Stupid Haters.

  • Jessa

    Poor Selena, is it just me or has she gotten a whole lot more hate since she started with Bieber?

  • MileyandSelena

    Wow, guys. There some pretty harsh comments on here. I think what weal fail to remember is that she too is human. No one can be perfect. Fair enough her imperfection is strip or pole dancing or what ever. As some of u said, her imperfection is hiding her mistakes. She needs to understand that children learn best from their mistakes. That being said, everyone is brought of differently, just because she is outrageous or out there doesnt make her any less of a human being. Parents or my parents rather, would ofcourse wanted me to learn from my mistakes but anywhere they see that i am about to trip, they lead me to the right path. Meaning, they stop me from making the mistake. Now, this might be how Selena was raised. She cant be penalised for doing what SHE thinks is right.

    On the note of her getting an e! news special, I think its absurd that you all think she got it for justin. She would have gotten one anyway with ot without him, with her movie, then the album and upcoming tour. She was bound to have one.

    And if you fail to understand any of this(I said understand not agree), then your hate for a celebrity you dont actually know, just makes me speechless.

    I wonder how you would all do under the spotlight, we EVERYONE critising ur every move. Its not easy to be under the light, but it is very easy to judge those who are.

  • Ashley

    hey, selena is successful because she is dating justin
    ————————-
    that is NOT success at all! not in the slightest! first of all, it’s not “success” for her to be dating Justin; that just happened. second, it is not “success” for a girl to be dating a boy. a woman can be just fine on her own; she does NOT need a man to be considered successful. yes, Selena has made quite a name for herself, but it has nothing to do with the fact she’s dating Justin. (also, I happen to agree; her success if very different from other celebrities)

    and I will only watch for Demi as well, and to see what Taylor has to say. those are girls I can call myself a fan to.

    selena got her start when she was on barney.

  • jesse

    This E! Special is just an excuse to talk about her and Justin. I mean would she had gotten this E! special without dating Justin, probably not cause she was kinda boring before everything blew up. Not that many people talked about her outside of Disney, but I’m definitely watching it.

  • DemiRocks

    I kinda agree, she was getting more famous each day anyway. If we all recall, justin was quite smitten with her to begin with. Its sad that any of her hardwork and sucess would be connected to her relationship with justin.

    Anyhoo, cant wait to watch this!!! :D

    I agree with everything you said here.

    The only thing is that I definitely do not think that Selena’s flaw is that she hides her mistakes. This upsets me sooo much when people bash her for this, or call her “fake” or say that she pretends to be perfect. I’m sure Selena makes plenty of normal people mistakes. She strikes me as the most down to earth and normal person in Hollywood; most normal people (especially teenage girls) do not lead outrageous lives of scandal and debauchery and constant gigantic mistake-making. They just don’t; that’s stuff that celebs do—she is the MOST relatable. About her “hiding” things. She’s in the public eye for being a performer, it is NOT, by any means, part of her job description to let any of us know all of the mistakes she makes in her life. That is PRIVATE. Part of being a celeb is understanding that people will find out personal things about you and you have to deal with it, but being a celeb does NOT mean that you have to WILLINGLY share all that—you just have to deal with it if it does happens. She seems like the only person that actually knows how to be famous; she’s professional and seperates her career and private life, and above all she always seem kind to her fans and all the people around her and that never seems forced. Sounds like she’s doing things really well, sounds like she behaves the way most other normal and outstanding people do in their fields, even if the field is not entertainment.

    ———————————————-

    I agree with Both of you…

    Just Imagine yourself being on her shoe.. What would you Feel?

    Some beliebers are Just.. I don’t know. There is no Word to Describe them.. I mean I thought Fans are suppose to Support them.. I thought Fans should suppose to Support all the Decisions they’re Idol’s make..

    Guys, You shouldn’t hate someone you don’t know.. About her Hiding her Mistakes, It’s Natural, I mean Just Because she’s a CELEB doesn’t mean She had to OPEN UP everything..

    And She Absolutely do deserve to have an E! Special.. She’s been Famous Even before She and Bieber Met..

    Hating on her cannot make Bieber Date you nor Dump her!

    Guys Just Imagine yourself Being SELENA.. What would you Feel being Bash everytime..

    So what If she does get this Special because of Justin ?! It’s not our Business.. It’s Theirs!!

    You Haters… Just SHUT THE FUCK UP!!

    If you guys don’t have anything good to Say, And instead Talk shit About her.. Just Keep it To yourself!

    And THINK about somebody else’s feelings too!

    Aish! GUYS! STOP THE HATE!!!!!

    Hate won’t lead you anywhere! You guys Haven’t Heard her Side Stories yet You Judge her Like you Guys Know Everything…

    You guys wouldn’t like if SOmebody Talk Trash about you, right? Just Imagine her Feelings too…

    Just Because it’s Only a Word.. Doesn’t mean It doesn’t HURT!

    Stop Doing things that You wouldn’t Like to Happen To YOU!

    But I’m sick of Selena getting all this recognition for just dating JB. She hasn’t achieved what the Jonas Brothers, Miley, or Justin have.

    Can I honestly say you guys are idiots? Guess what Selena is successful. She has had a career in the business longer than either of the JB’s. She is on par with Miley just not as HANNAH MONTANA famous.
    She helped Demi get a foot in the door so she could have a music career. Selena constantly helps her friends like Forever the Sickest Kids, Allstar Weekend and Christina Grimmie just to name a few. I am reall ytired of everyone either comparing her with Miley or saying she is only famous because of Justin. She has worked hard and deserves way more respect than any of you.
    Selena has built a following from her accomplishments and that says a lot.

    False. Everyone knows Selena is a sweetheart. Just cause the losers on this site spread rumors about her does not change the fact that she is an incredible person. Her fans support her, but just as Selena is the most normal person in Hollywood, her fans are also super normal and not complete nutjobs like, say, Beliebers or Lovatics. We don’t need to go crazy cursing people out; we just enjoy SELENA, everything else is irrevelant.
